THE BAY OF MANY COVES RESORT

AMAZING

WE LOVE NEW ZEALAND, AND THE BAY OF MANY COVES WOULD HAVE TO BE ONE OF OUR MOST-FAVE STAYS

so relaxing, so beautiful, so ‘delicious’ – this is one of our #happyplaces


Bushwalking, dolphin watching, kayaking, searching for glow worms, having a spa treatment, eating, drinking, swimming – not doing anything at all… The Bay Of Many Coves is a luxurious retreat sanctuary in every sense, surrounded by New Zealand’s stunning bush in the Marlborough Sounds. It’s a place to relax, escape the everyday and discover the exceptional. A place that we think, everyone should visit/stay.

There’s not a week that goes past that at least one of us says, “Wish we were at The Bay Of Many Coves right now”… and even though this doesn’t do it justice, here’s why:

Naturally stunning, green-luxe, with impeccable attention to detail…
here’s a little more on how we rated our two-might stay at The Bay Of Many Coves:

THE LOCALITY RATING: Deep in the Marlborough Sounds, The Bay of Many Coves is perfectly secluded away from the mainland – so far away from the stressful real world.
THE VIBE RATING: Luxury, five star, eco-friendly, totally relaxing, de-stressing, calming – you won’t want to leave.
THE ROOM RATING: We stayed in a two-bedroom apartment {hatch} which was amazing, the decor and styling I loved… it was the perfect size, had everything we needed/would want, {including wifi} and so comfy and warm and cosy!
TOILETRY RATING: Natural, from New Zealand, great sizes and every product worked, and smelt, a treat.
THE PILLOW RATING: Perfect, so perfect we all slept in until 10am the first morning we stayed.
THE CONCIERGE RATING: Ten stars, everyone at The Bay Of Coves, so lovely… Elaine and Murray are the best – nothing was a problem, everything was ready and waiting for us – they were so friendly, so helpful, so passionate, so amazing – we hugged and kissed them when we left.

THE DINING EXPERIENCE: There are three places to dine: The Foredeck {fine dining, candle-light dinner dates}: The Kumatage for freshly-cooked gourmet breakfasts, delicious brunches or a leisurely lunch that continue on into the afternoon. Or you could have a bite to eat at the Bight Café {the waterfront bistro} down on the jetty. The Bay Of Coves uses local ingredients and luxuries, Marlborough’s freshest seasonal produce, and the finest award-winning wines which totally reflect their passion for authentic New Zealand at its very best. Heaven on a plate, some of the best food we’ve eaten… as Mr M says ‘legit’.
